Description

Can your students encode critical information into
their long-term memories?


Academic
standards call for increased rigour, but simply raising complexity is not
enough. Students must also know how to retrieve critical information and
comprehend key features of the content. Teachers must strategically impart the
skills students need to authentically engage with content so that they can
effectively process the learning and store it for future use.


This
revised Australian edition of Processing New Information: Classroom
Techniques to Help Students Engage With Content
explores explicit
techniques for mastering a crucial strategy of instructional practice –
processing new information. It includes:



  • explicit steps for implementation

  • recommendations
    for monitoring to see if students are able to process new information

  • adaptations
    for students who struggle, have special needs or excel in learning

  • examples
    and nonexamples from classroom practice

  • common mistakes and ways to avoid them


The
Essentials for Achieving Rigour series of instructional guides helps educators
become highly skilled at implementing, monitoring and adapting instruction. Put
it to practical use immediately, adopting day-to-day examples as models for
application in your own classroom.
